    1. The song is from the late ’60’s and I don’t think the technology for synthesizing horns (at least not that well) was around then, so it’s most likely a live horn section.

  1. I haven’t heard this one either and the title made me think of a different song, the one by Lee Michaels, so I was totally unprepared for the way this one sounded.

  2. John,

    First time hearing this song. I guess The Turtles most popular song is ‘Happy Together’ but I find it interesting how a group came out with such a fun-loving song also did ‘Eve of Destruction’. Have a rockin’ good day and thanks for stopping in today!

  3. The only song I remember from The Turtles was Happy Together. I was an avid radio listener back in the day, so this song probably wasn’t played much in the Boston area.

    1. That happened a lot, where a song would be real popular in some cities and practically unheard of in others. I see that on Fridays, when a song that reached #1 on a specific station came in much lower nationally, or I’ll find a song that I never heard (or at least can’t remember) placing high nationally. Weird how they determine what does and doesn’t get played.

    1. Not as popular as some of their others. It only reached #12 nationally, though it reached #6 in Canada. It might not have been played much in your market; I heard it a lot in Chicago.
